  1. i like summer because it means riding and bass fishing. last month i bought a house, and last weekend, 2 puppies. that means that this summer will not be spent riding or fishing. it'll be spent cutting the vines off the back fence, refinishing the deck, sealing the bilco doors, and cleaning up dog pee. you can;t ge mad at them though, because they are way too cute i would love to post an image, but for whatever reason the forum wont let me. i have no patience right now to screw around trying to figure out why the ef this forum auto edits my bb code
  2. afaik, it's legal for them to protect the body shape, and other aspects that make their instruments unique. if that's what they want to do, they have the right to do it. there's enough wiggle room in there to allow other manufacturers to get pretty similar before there is an issue. gibby can go after chibby of it wants to, but it will amount to nothing, so i doubt that is who the video was aimed at. i suspect it may be boutique builders, and possibly folks like rondo, as well. if they do get more agressive with other builders who are using parts of their design, i have no beef with it, as long as they dont use intimidation tactics to scare little guys away from doing their legit thing.
  3. a very good choice, imo i will say this about strats: i have one. it's a hot rod. truth is, it's a more versatile guitar than my les paul. it sounds better, and plays great. i play the lp more because it's more comfortable. but the strat is a better all around guitar.
  4. other than the white background i LOVE the new forum for the way it works now. thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you
  5. a 335 fits everyone's requirements, because they are the coolest guitars ever made 😀
  6. dude - do you realize that guitar is defective? it was made backwards
  7. i'm moving next weekend, so i don't feel like dragging out my board to take a pic. however, what i have is: guitar>polytune>pitchfactor>ocd>firey red horse fuzz> blueprint delay>rotochoir>amp i dont use any of the pedals that much. each one has certain specific things i use it for. 75% of the time i use the amp's o/d and a little delay. i will take this opportunity to repeat something i say each time the subject of pedals comes up - there is no fuzz ever made that comes close to the firey red horse. if you like fuzz i dont care what sound you're after, the red horse will deliver. just be sure to get an older one with the 3 way switch at the top that allows you to use different transistors according to your needs. if you think your fuzz sounds better, you're wrong. it doesn't.
  8. epi has some nice guitars. i won't knock them. i've had a few that were excellent. swapping electronics is no big deal, so that's a plus. my only complaint with them is the poly finish. i've played somewhere the poly was like what they use on deck furniture. it's soft and when my hands warm up they start to stick. i tried baby powder, but it gums up if i sweat. i've been playing a 14 studio pro since new, and i love it. i keep saying i'm eventually going to swap out the bridge pick up (bb pro) for a 57 classic, but i haven't done it yet. getting a used studio will get you down in the $700-$800 range, you'll get a great guitar. you'd have to spend almost that much on a new epi to get something comparable anyhow. the only fool proof thing you can do is get out there and play a few of each
  9. i haven't had a haircut in 2 yrs/ i have no idea what they cost 😁
  10. your guitar is haunted. best thing you can do is send it to me, i will contain the evil so it can't harm anyone. i do this as a free public service. pm me for a shipping address
  11. the most important thing of all is to have the right things in the photo so it can be known to be authentic. 2) the hottest babe you know, naked. 3) the 2nd hottest babe you know, also naked, bonus points for garter and stockings (but nothing else) optional: the guitar in question
  12. for real? i thought it was hilarious
  13. someone probably tricked him into it
